The relegation of Jomo Cosmos from the GladAfrica Championship to the ABC Motsepe League has shocked football supporters and an associate of Jomo Sono has revealed the club's plans to bounce back.
Sekhukhune United head Coach MacDonald Makhubedu has enjoyed a close relationship with the Jomo Cosmos boss, and like many of his students, expressed his sadness by the relegation of Ezenkosi.
"Two days before the game where he was relegated I was with him, during and after the game. He is like a father to me, he is close friends with my father, so you can imagine, even now I can't believe that this club has been relegated," Makhubedu told the media.
Makhubedi has hinted that Ezenkosi might make an appearance in the DStv Premiership.
"Every three days a week I'm with him, so i feel bad for Cosmos. He is like family but I'm confident he will bounce back. He is a visionary, I know he will come back," the coach added.
"He is always calm. He is five steps ahead of many of us, with the team he has around him, I can tell you that his three boys are heading to Qatar. He had his under-16s playing in Dubai last month. He is backed by big people with huge money but I can't say their names here. I know he will be back whether before next season starts or the following season but he will either play in the DStv Premiership or ABC Motsepe League.
"Talking to him, maybe I'm too foward but he may play in the PSL next season, either DStv or ABC Motsepe League, not in the GladAfrica Championship. He is very confident and very happy with the people around him. I've never seen him this happy, I've been with him for some time but I've never seen him this happy."
